Services Offered By Professional Sandblasting Services

“Sandblasting” uses a high-pressure stream of air, water, and grit to remove paint and rust from a surface and smooth out rough textures in metal. The aim is to quickly remove the coating without damaging the underlying material.  

It’s best known for its use on construction sites or any major projects that require smoothing or painting over large or hard-to-reach surfaces such as cars, buildings, bridges, and ships. Sandblasting can also be used for cleaning up graffiti and removing old paint from walls around a home. Take a look at some common processes where a sandblasting crew can be used effectively.

Industrial Sandblasting

Industrial sandblasting is applying the power of air to blast away unwanted portions or coverings from an object. This process is used to achieve a smoother surface, either to prepare an object for painting or to remove objects entirely. You can contact Elite Blasting and Coatings to get professional sandblasting done.

For example, Industrial Sandblasting is used on cars and construction projects such as buildings and bridges. Industrial Sandblasting will provide a smooth, uniform surface while exposing a clean, bright metal underneath, safe for continued use or further applications.

Commercial Sandblasting

Commercial sandblasting is used on large projects to remove unwanted paint or rust from a surface and smooth out large, uneven surfaces. It is also used to remove marks, scratches, and scratches that may remain after refinishing a wood floor (for example). For commercial sandblasting, various types of materials are available for different applications. For example:

  • Steel โ€“ used for removing rust 
  • Lead โ€“ used for removing paint
  • Abrasive Paving โ€“ used for polishing glass and smooth concrete floors
  • Glass Finishing โ€“ used for removing fingerprints and cleaning windows.

Rust Removal

Removing rust from metal or concrete surfaces is called “rust removal.” This process removes the rust completely from the surface, providing a smooth surface for refinishing. 

A non-abrasive material is used for rust removal, such as aluminum oxide. It is applied in a layer to protect the underlying surface while removing the rust. Once complete, the sandblasted layer can be removed and the original surface restored. 

Architectural Sandblasting

The architecture field is a very popular career choice for many occupation seekers. To put up a new building or structure, one needs to consider various aspects such as building design and construction from the architectural standpoint. In most countries, architects are required to obtain professional permits to construct new buildings. The majority of people in the architectural field require protective treatment when sandblasting buildings for construction purposes.

Sandblasted Signs

Sandblasted signs are usually used outside large commercial buildings and in business districts to advertise different companies’ names or products, telephone numbers, and website addresses. Sandblasting is an environmentally friendly process of removing paint and rust from metals, concrete, and other surfaces through pressures exceeding 2200 psi (15MPa).

In summary, sandblasting can be used in many different ways. For any process, it is important to consider the materials that are being prepared for use and the requirements of the end-users.
